Unformatted text preview: Lab Safety – Biology 111 Lab 6 – Osmosis and Diffusion • Goggles and closed-toed shoes are required! • Gloves need to be worn. • Do not open the demonstration petri dishes containing potassium permanganate. Potassium permanganate is an oxidizing agent. It increases the flammability of materials with which it comes in contact. Your TA will dispose of the potassium permanganate plates in the appropriately labeled waste container on the side counter. • Do not open the antibiotic plates on demonstration. • Dispose of Lugol’s solution in the base waste container on the side counter. • Keep waste containers closed when not disposing of waste, and do not fill past indicated line on containers.
